Simple Chat Example - VCRUNTIME140_1.dll

Hello All,

When trying to run the example Simple Chat on my copy of Xojo2020r1.2, I am getting a dialog on the screen stating that “The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.”. I did re-install Xojo2020r1.2, but it did not seem to fix the issue.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Install visual studio runtime 2019, please.

Excellent. That fixed it, Christian. Thank you very much! -Simon

I’m already including the VC_redist.x64 with our web product installer, the one that came with 2020R2. And, our clients are reporting this same error when installed on a server OS, and it works file when installed on Windows 10. Are you telling me that the 2020 redist doesn’t include the vcruntime140_1.dll file but the 2019 version does?

In our current Web application, we use the following MBS plugins (20.5):
Although we set the license information in code to use CDBaseChartMBS, we don’t actual use any of it’s functionality.

Could any of this cause the requirement for the vcruntime140_1.dll?

Yes. Please don’t register if you don’t use it.

Or use older ChartDirector plugin.

@Christian_Schmitz Question: Will you ever stop the dependence on the vcruntime140_1.dll file?

Not sure if we can.
